The number of shopping portals offering cash back, point and mile earning can be dizzying. But I did come across a relatively new site that offers cash back and cool tools to be a smart shopper.
Initially I registered with BeFrugal.com for their $10 bonus and $5 refer a friend program, but I think I’ll stick with them for a bit. And I like their statement, “A dollar saved is two dollars earned because (a) saving is less work than earning, and (b) any earnings get taxes taken out before they can turn into savings.” True!
